View Full Version : Spamassassin

Hi, I'm wondering abit about spamassassin, I've used it to rewrite subjects to ***SPAM*** and it works like a charm, but now after having seen that it works as it is supposed to I thought I'd change it to reject SPAM mail instead, but nothing happends when I do so, am I supposed to restart something or what??

In the homedir of that user there is a file called .spamassassin.rc (with a dot at the beginning!).

Can you post that file here?

# SpamAssassin sample procmailrc
# Pipe the mail through spamassassin (replace 'spamassassin' with 'spamc'
# if you use the spamc/spamd combination)
# The condition line ensures that only messages smaller than 250 kB
# (250 * 1024 = 256000 bytes) are processed by SpamAssassin. Most spam
# isn't bigger than a few k and working with big messages can bring
# SpamAssassin to its knees.
* < 256000

# Mails with a score of 15 or higher are almost certainly spam (with 0.05%

Looks correct. All spam should be sent to /dev/null.

Well I agree, but it doesn't... :(

All spam is still getting through with the subject rewritten

Have you checked the header of the mails, if it contains the
X-Spam-Status: Yes

All spam mail headers contain : X-Spam-Flag: YES

But no mail is deleted, anyone has any idéa??

Try adding this too maybe...

* ^X-Spam-Flag: YES

@hagel: Do your mail headers contain X-Spam-Status: Yes or X-Spam-Flag: YES? That's an important difference! :)
